17 PRESCRIBING Marking guide for A and B. Candidates should be given 4 marks for an optimal answer. They should get 3 marks for an answer that is good but is suboptimal on some grounds (e.g. cost-effectiveness, likely adherence). They should get 2 marks for an answer that is likely to provide benefit but is clearly suboptimal for more than one reason. They should get 1 mark for an answer that has some justification and deserves some credit. The mark achieved in A determines the maximum achievable mark in B.
